Proposal in the Shade of Blood:

I've been stabbed violently in the lungs,
Each and every breathe I had saved for you
Has been ripped and torn from my chest
In savagery and confusing disarray.

I've been gutted brutally from my underbelly,
Each and every hunger I had for your love
Has been mutilated and pulled from my stomach
With hyena-like ferocity and famine.

But do I dare say that I've been drowning
In my blood;
Eaten alive by dogs
Because you finally love me as much as I do you?

I do dare,
I do.
